MUSIC CURRENT 2024: Lovemusic Collective - (L)Autre

6 April 2024 20:00

Project Arts Centre

Lovemusic Collective: Emiliano Gavito, flute; Adam Starke, clarinet/bass clarinet; Emily Yabe, violin/viola; Lola Malique, cello; Christian Lozano Sedano, e-guitar; Finbar Hosie, electronics.

(L) AUTRE delves into the concept of otherness - the state of being different and foreign to one's identity, labelling individuals as subordinate and excluding them from social norms. The starting point for this project was a collaboration with Sasha Blondeau and the new work Autres improprops/inapproprié•e•s as part of their "Devenir|s mutant es" cycle. Referencing Trinh Minh-ha's theory and Donna Haraway's Cyborg concept, the work for flute, clarinet, viola, cello, e-guitar, and electronics delves into questions of identity and difference. Additionally, compositions by Neil Luck, CMC Composer Ann Cleare, and Bára Gísladóttir explore themes ranging from actor David Patrick Kelly's roles to meditations on self and the power of anonymity. Finbar Hosie's The Hyacinth Garden draws inspiration from T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, offering a political and sensual exploration through wastelands and gardens. The project will also include a new installation work by Lara Gallagher exploring found sounds and materials including a structural/sculptural element developing interactions between traditional and digital instruments made from organic materials.

"lovemusic really offers a new approach to the idea of a concert, based on exchange, and thought of like an urban breath of fresh air”. Christian Wolff - DNA

lovemusic is a collective of musicians specialised in new music based in Strasbourg. Working with composers on new and exciting works that will enrich the musical world is at the heart of what we do. This means collaborating with artists who wish to create new music together in which both the composer and musicians are actively involved in the creative process. We have had the pleasure of working with Santiago Diez Fischer, Michelle Agnes Magalhaes, David Bird, Erin Gee, Jesse Broekman, Michele Abondano, Finbar Hosie, Annette Schlünz, Jérôme Combier, Malin Bång, Philip Venables, Kelley Sheehan, Raphael Languillat, Maria Laura Dissandro…
